One problem I have with this guy is that his ult's CD doesn't activate until it goes off. That alone makes it extremely good, because other similar ults like Epicenter on Sand King can be interrupted if you know what you're doing. Granted, that is a shorter channel time than this one, but I still think that the CD should be activated when he uses the skill.

Also, a question- do his traps provide vision like Templar Assassin's traps? If so, how much?

Overall, I like the hero. He requires positioning skills, which is something that I like on a hero. If I were playing him, what I might buy for items would be Veil of Discord/ Black King Bar/ Blink Dagger, just for the lulz initiation; use bkb, blink in, activate typhoon, drop the active on veil, drop a lightning trap, then a fire trap, then the ult. :D

Wanna make a spoiler box? Just type in [_spoiler=thetextyouwant] and [_/spoiler] without the underscores. Whatever you type in between those 2 will be in the spoiler box. :)

First of all: Thanks for the responses.

@Porygon - I'll edit this post right away, thanks for that no more walls of texts! YAY! :D

@Crazy Tom - It is indeed a very high Channeling Time and Cooldwon of 2:30 minutes (without Scepter). 7 Seconds is long, almost an eternity.
I designed it that way, so he can postion himself new, should an enemy get to close to him.

But alright I'll change it :D

The traps do grant vision, I really forgot to mention that... but not much, around the same as TAs, which are 200 if I recall correctly.

About that initiation you mentioned: that would actually be hilarious, didn't thought of being THAT aggressive :D
Creative people behold!
